The Detroit Lions have agreed to a deal with former New York Jets CB Justin Miller. According to Tim Twentyman of Detroitlions.com the Lions signed Miller to a one-year deal.
Miller, 28 was a second round pick of the Jets in 2005 out of Clemson. He made his name known on the special teams as he was a Pro Bowler in his second season and averaged 26.3 yards per return his rookie season with the Jets. Miller hasn’t played in the NFL since the 2010 season.
Miller will fill the void for the Lions at corner since they released Aaron Berry earlier this week after news of his second arrest.
Justin Miller has also played with the Oakland Raiders and Arizona Cardinals.
Alphonzo Smith, Chris Houston, Jacob Lacey, rookie Bill Bentley and Miller will compete for the Lions 3 corner spots.
